In addition to this, let me tell you something the guilty gear world is nothing like our world and it is just like our world. This is confusing? Wait for the game you’ll get everything.
So, let me take you the time from where it all started.
Flashback – The story start from the backyard, as this is the place where all the mess started. 3 intelligent scientists named Frederick Bulsara, Aria Hale, That Man. No, no his name is not “That man” it is called so in the game.
It was later revealed in the story that his name is Asuka R. Kruez. So, the three scientists, who always curious about Magic, thought “How can we make the Magic better than before? What if people have magic in their blood and vein?”
Thinking of this, they have done lot of Genetic changes and called it the genetically changes as Gear cells and the human which have this cell as Gear.
They were doing it because of the medical purpose so that they can cure many diseases which are incurable in today’s note But things were not that easy as you thought. At the same time, the Government don’t want this thing to happen. So eventually they uses there experiment to use for war.
- Frederick and Aria turning into gear- On the other hand, Aria got a disease which was rare and incurable. She was soon going to die. Frederick, who was her boyfriend try to to spend as much time as possible with her. But Asuka was not happy to see this all. So he turns them as gear and make them immortals.
- Fredrick turns into a monster and destroy all the gear research. Afraid of what he had done, he went into hiding. Due to this he creates a magitech headband to control his power and with the help of it he looks like a normal human being but at the same time he possess all his superpower.
- Restarting the gear project –After a while the gear project starts again, the only problem was the gear can go monster and destroy everything around them. That’s why aria is converted into Justice. She was the first mass command gear that can control all other gears. Now whoever wants to control gear should control the Justice i.e. Aria. This sounds like a bad idea, isn’t it?
- Entry of Evil –
The gears are now being transported around the world for their better use. It seems everything is going right? No, In the meantime someone is doing their best to destroy every gear and every gear research facility in existence. This is done by none other than “Sol the Badguy.” who is an unbelievably powerful terrorist.
For your information, his name is Freddy. Also called Fred, who popularly known as Sol Badguy. In time he invents a anti-gear which he called the Outrage. But the power of the weapon is so strong which is not in anyone’s control. Under those circumstances he split the weapon into smaller weapons known as the Eight Sacred Treasures.
Remember when I said that giving Justice all the powers yo control gear was a bad idea?
Later in the story, the badguy activates Justice and she goes berserk and wipes out Japan.
But it was later revealed in the story that this was happen due to the Universal Will was trying to come into existence again so Asuka ordered her to blow it up just to be safe.
